It's no secret that I am, shall we say, into chocolate. Apparently, so are you! Thanks to all of you who attended the #LindtBoston event on Sunday at the Lindt Chocolate Shop at the Lenox hotel. I had so much fun making truffle-related crafts with you (think: wine bottles covered in gold-wrapped chocolate truffles to look like a pineapple), and two of you won a year of chocolate from Lindt! Talk about a sweet deal.
I took home a big bag of truffles myself, which prompted Mr. TBF to comment, "What on earth are we going to do with all those?" To him I replied, "What won't we do!" In addition to the obvious, delicious option (treating myself to a delightful chocolate break), I have so many uses for LINDOR truffles.
First, truffles are perfect for gifts! Has a co-worker done you a solid? Surprise them with a coffee mug filled with their favorite truffles. Have a new neighbor? Welcome them with a basket filled with chocolates and a bottle of wine. Does your child have a new teacher? Show them your appreciation with a jar full of truffles, pencils and pens.
I've also been using chocolates in my entertaining. An antique candy dish filled with truffles makes an effortless, elegant addition to a dessert table, or even an everyday entry way! Regular readers know I have recently re-decorated my guest room, but I've always kept a small jar of truffles in there, along with a bottle of water, for guests to enjoy. I've even taken to filling unusual household items (wine glasses, pretty measuring cups) with chocolates and placing them around the house so that a whimsical, indulgent truffle break is easily at hand.
I was inspired by the creativity you all brought to the #LindtBoston event on Sunday - besides the aforementioned pineapple, you made a truffle reindeer (hello holiday decor) and some pretty New Year's Eve decorating ideas that were super easy to create, even for an awkward Pinterest-Failer like myself. What are some other ways you use LINDOR truffles? Give me and Lindt a shout out and let us know!
